    This is harmful because it displays the he'd phones as a woman breast and the text as the woman's bottom privacy spot(s) which is sexism and is objectifying the woman's body.

    This is harmful to women because they are using women body parts as advertisements

    I don't find having sexual feelings to be a bad thing. What I do find a negative thing however, is when it's expressed in uncomfortable harassment. Whoever made this ad has some things he dislikes about himself, and wants to feel better by making women feel inferior.
